Former President John Dramani Mahama has alleged that some members of the New Patriotic Party (NPP) are involved in illegal mining.
He noted that, despite the government’s claims, only party members participate in community mining.
He stated that some DCEs and party members have deep roots in Galamsey.
He was speaking during an interview on TV3.
He also asked President Akufo-Addo to resign because he had failed the galamsey fight.
The President in 2017 put his presidency on the line as part of efforts to end galamsey.
“I have said in Cabinet, and perhaps this is the first time I am making this public that I am prepared to put my presidency on the line on this matter.”
Mr. Mahama reacting said “If you go to the districts they talk about community mining. Community mining is the NPP party executives and the DCEs who are doing the community mining.
“So, they are the ones doing what they are doing, so how can you expect him to fight galamsey when his own people are the ones who are doing it.”
